Guangzhou Evergrande may be one of the biggest spending clubs in the world but coach Luis Felipe Scolari scoffed at the idea they should be expected to waltz into the knockout stages of the Asian Champions League.The Chinese champions, who splashed out $45 million on Colombian striker Jackson Martinez last month, Wednesday meet Sydney FC, who are obliged to stay under a salary cap of around $3 million a season for their entire squad.With the Chinese Super League not kicking off until next weekend, however, Scolari said this was a time of year for remaining resolutely pragmatic.In stark contrast to Scolari, Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold was more than happy to talk about the different resources available to the two men, and claim underdog status.
